Last Wednesday and Friday I weighed myself at the gym. On the same, doctor’s-office type scale I’ve used for quite some time. Clearly the old scale needs calibration.
Earlier this year, it was simple. Stand on scale. Set bottom (big) weight on the ‘200’ spot. Adjust top weight until the scale balances. In the spring, it was at ’17.’ A few weeks ago, it was at ‘1.’
On Wednesday and Friday, I put the big weight to 200 and the small to zero – the scale still stayed bottomed out. Woohoo!
Then I dropped the big weight back to 150, and started moving the small weight. 45…47…49…50… Nothing.
I moved it PAST 50 on the top scale. All the way to the end. Nothing.
So, apparently I weigh more than (150 + 50) pounds, but less than (200 + 0) pounds.
Clearly my body weight has tried to divide by zero or something.
